about

This volume presents the state-of-the-art knowledge on the involvement of the immune system in myocordial and vascular diseases. In the field of myocarditis, both virological and immunological findings are presented, and the interactions between the virus and the immune system are discussed. Since the cellular immune system and its mediators play an important role in the inflammation by bacteria that cause endocarditis and septic shock, studies investigating the underlying pathomechanisms are described. Another major topic in this volume is the involvement of the immune system in arteriosclerosis and coronary heart disease. The final chapter addresses the question of therapeutic options, presenting new approaches for a specific and effective therapy.
